Donald Trump Has Officially Pardoned Lil Wayne

Donald Trump Has Officially Pardoned Lil Wayne

The news we have all been waiting for! On the final day before he has to leave office, Donald Trump has pardoned Lil Wayne.

This means Wayne will not have to serve time behind bars after pleading guilty to a gun possession by a convicted felon charge at the end of 2020.

If you are not aware, Tunechi was caught illegally carrying a gold-plated .45-caliber Glock handgun in his luggage on his private jet on December 23rd, 2019.

I wonder if this pardon has anything to do with Weezy and the President of the United States of America’s “great meeting” about criminal reform and the Platinum Plan?

Donald Trump Is Considering Pardoning Lil Wayne Before He Leaves Office

Administration officials have been discussing pardoning Wayne after he plead guilty to his gun possession by a convicted felon charge last month.

Back in October last year, Weezy had a “great meeting” with the President of the United States of America to discuss criminal reform and the Platinum Plan! Do you think Trump will pardon Tune?

Lil Wayne’s Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

Lil Wayne Gun Charge Sentencing Has Been Pushed Back

It looks like Lil Wayne will have to wait a couple of months before he is sentenced for illegally carrying a gun on his private jet at the end of 2019.

According to AllHipHop, Wayne‘s attorney Howard Srebnick has claimed the January 28th sentencing date given at the virtual court hearing just over a week ago was too ambitious.

The lawyer has been successful in submitting a new request to the United States District Court for the Southern District Of Florida asking for Tunechi‘s sentencing date to be pushed back to early March.

Tune could face up to 10-years behind bars for his gun possession by a convicted felon charge, but there is a possibility of a reduced sentence, due to him pleading guilty.

Even though there has not been a date confirmed by the judge as of right now, Howard has suggested that Weezy should be sentenced on the afternoon of either March 2nd, 4th, 9th, or the 11th. I will update this post when the date gets confirmed! The new sentence date is March 4th!

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Federal Firearm Charge; Faces Up To 10 Years In Prison

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Federal Firearm Charge - Faces Up To 10 Years In Prison

After finding out last month Lil Wayne had been charged for carrying a gold-plated .45-caliber Glock handgun in his luggage on his private jet that he claimed was a Father’s Day gift on December 23rd, 2019, Wayne had his first court appearance yesterday.

Tunechi pleaded guilty to the gun possession by a convicted felon charge by telling the judge over a virtual hearing in a Miami federal court: “Your honor, I plead guilty”.

The sentencing for Weezy is scheduled for next month on January 28th, 2021 and unfortunately, he faces up to 10 years in prison, due to having a previous gun charge from over 10 years ago. However, the punishment may not be as harsh as that after taking responsibility!

Looks Like Lil Wayne Will Be Going To Prison (Pleads Guilty)

Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty

Rapper Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to attempted weapons possession charges today (October 22).

As reported earlier, the rapper is expected to receive a maximum sentence of one year in jail, although he is expected to serve around eight months in prison for the offense.

The rapper had previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, but changed the plea to avoid a trial that was due to start January 20 and could have resulted in at least 3 ½ years in prison.

The guilty plea stems from an incident in New York in 2007, after police found a .40 caliber handgun during a search of his tour bus.

Originally, lawyers for Wayne planned to contest the charges.

Yesterday (October 21), the plea was entered after Wayne’s DNA evidence was allegedly found on the weapon and deemed admissible by a judge.

The DNA evidence found was reportedly small, and Wayne’s lawyers initially sparred with the prosecution over whether the DNA profiling technique used was scientifically acceptable.

Before the trial, Lil Wayne’s manager had publicly taken responsibility for the gun on the rapper’s VH1 special.

Lil Wayne, 27, also faces a trial in Arizona for felony drug possession and weapons charges, after a 2008 arrest during a routine stop at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

Via AHH and this is terrible news 🙁 He will probably have to cut his dreads, and you can view a video below of Lil Wayne turning up to court earlier:
